    Well, in fairness to recent events, Rapinoe hasn't been on trial for war crimes like some Navy Seals in the past two weeks. So yeah, maybe she is a national hero.

    I'd also wager whomever made that meme has this framed and hung on their wall

    Fat fuck bubbas are not erosion.

    Worst meme ever.

    Regarding golf being "great exercise" I would agree if the alternative is sitting on your ass. It's like when doctors advise that walking is is just as good as running. It isn't. Not even close. Unless your only goal of exercising is to stave off heart disease. If that isn't your only goal, don't take fitness advice from your fucking doctor unless s/he is very fit. Also, don't take advice from anyone who thinks about exercise in terms of how many calories they imagine they have burned.

    If you want to stay strong, fast and capable as you age, you need to utilize your strength, keep moving fast, and generally challenge your physical capabilities. Golf doesn't do any of that. This is a ski forum for fuck's sake. If you want to be skiing into your 80's, as I do, golf isn't even in the discussion when it comes to "great" exercise.

    From Rapinoe's speech at the parade or something:

    “This is my charge to everyone. We have to be better," she said. "We have to love more, hate less. We’ve got to listen more and talk less. We’ve got to know that this is everybody’s responsibility. Every single person here. Every single person who is not here. Every single person who doesn’t want to be here. Every single person who agrees and doesn’t agree, it’s our responsibility to make this world a better place. Also, Golf is not great exercise. C'mon people, get real. Maybe play soccer or something."

    Who are you quoting? Exactly no one said "great"


    There are plenty of drunk fat skiers that smoke. And, riding up the lift and skiing down ain't all that.

    Even backcountry skiing is mostly just walking. If an 18 hole round of golf carrying a bag isn't exercise, not sure how one could characterize backcountry skiing as exercise.

    But absolutely, walking the 18 holes isn't going to get you in shape for mt biking or any olympic sport. But it also isn't nothing.

    But not the French. And they thought they would win the Women's World Cup because they were hosting. Ha. The French don't do well on European soil.

    World Series. Until the Blue Jays won back to back I never liked that term.

    Now The World Series of Poker sound real legit.

    Btw is the British Open winner able to say "I'm the world champion" ?

    The numbers of Chinese and Russians killed in WWII were absolutely insane. The average American doesn't have the faintest idea how bad that war was for those countries, and certainly not anyone who would wear that shirt.

    Or that France had more casualties than USA.

    Not to thread drift, but this advice basically contradicts most current exercise physiology theories including Steve House and Scott Johnson. Both claim that most beneficial Heart Rate Intensity level is 2 and 3 which is 40-60% of your max heart rate, a pace that you can easily talk. Translates to walking and light running for most people.

    Do you ski at a golf course? I'm not a golfer, but most golf courses are flat AF.

    Fair enough, but most people don't ski in 90 degree weather with a golf bag slung over their shoulder.

    I'm not a golfer either, FWIW. I just know that a shit ton of walking is decent exercise. It's not exercise designed to optimize performance for the sports I do, but it is exercise in terms of all the health metrics.

    Well duh, the US didn't enter the conflicts until late in the game when the other combatants had been pounding eachother relentlessly for years. We were like the competitor in the WWE battle royal who hides under the ring until there are only one or two others remaining and they are wrecked from going on for an hour.

    We were the only remaining super power whose factories, navies and air forces weren't decimated. That's also why our economy did so well in the 50s and 60s, no real competition.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    As this thread is devoted to the women's world cup and we're discussing the exercise value of golfing, I'd say we're already pretty drifted.

    I'm curious about this (I have heard it but only in vague terms). I also have heard/read that HIIT is the way to improve performance. Are the two theories reconcilable or are they looking at different things?

    Launching a new sport!

    Cross country ski golfing, competitors will ski the first 9 holes with 70 lbs of golf bag on back while whacking little orange balls into holes. The last 9 holes they can dump the golf bag but spectators will be throwing lawn darts from the sides of the course while they are in play.
    watch out for snakes
